Abstract

On 21 September 1999, the Ji Ji earthquake killed 2,347 people. In the immediate aftermath the international community mobilised rapidly and sent urban search-and-rescue (US&R) teams to the scene. This paper will present will an annotated survey of the expertise and standard of equipment of international US&R teams following that earthquake which could serve as a blueprint for the establishment of US&R teams elsewhere at risk from earthquakes.
